Gentlemen may prefer blondes...

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

I heard a phrase today that annoyed the piss out of me. "Gentlemen may prefer blondes, but it takes a real man to handle a redhead."

Shut the fuck up already and give me a break. This is yet another example of someone creating a phrase they think is catchy and empowering just to help their self-esteem - and if you're in that much need of a pick-me-up for something that specific, then you have issues. You're a redhead. Deal with it. There are people that like redheads above all others and there are a majority of people that prefer blondes or brunettes. Just because you're not a part of the majority doesn't mean you need to just make up some retarded little quip to try to justify yourself TO yourself. You're not special.



This site is dead and has been for a long while, for multiple reasons—not the least of which is that it's of a different era (roughly 2007). You can no longer safely play around with discussing gray areas with a humorous twist. People don't read between the lines. If they want to be offended, they'll twist what you said to mean whatever they want, and you're guilty no matter what. Or, on the flip-side, instead of being too sensitive, they'll think you're somehow defending their awfully bigoted or shameful viewpoints, even if you aren't. Both extreme sides of everything are so black/white dumb that it's an impossible minefield to navigate. If anything on here doesn't age well, sorry; times have changed, and so do people, for better or worse. Get over it. (It being "everything") There is always more important shit out there going on. Out on limbs.
